The third in the series of live, improvised ambient albums. Another 17 quiet ambient songs - mainly piano and baritone guitar - with 17 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create new...
